The Baltimore Ravens face off against their former defensive coordinator Rex Ryan and his New York Jets this Sunday.  The players and fans view this as a rivalry game because the Jets have many former Ravens, including former fan-favorite linebacker Bart Scott.  Here are the key match ups.

Ray Rice vs Jets Run defense

Since Ryan has become the Jets Head Coach, the Jets have had a very good run-stopping defense.  That seems to have changed recently as they have been getting beaten on the ground.  Last game the Raiders rushed for 234 yards against the Jets.

Ray Lewis vs LaDainian Tomlinson

Lewis and Tomlinson may be good friends off the field but on the field they are bitter enemies.  LT may not be running between tackles as he once did but Lewis and LT are sure to meet a few times during this game.

Anquan Boldin vs Derrelle Revis

It will be interesting to see who the Jets have cover Boldin.  I predict it will be Revis since he is more suited to match up against a big receiver.  This should be a great match up to watch, both are excellent players that will be battling all game.
